Age-Related Macular Degeneration Awareness Month
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Low Vision Awareness Month is here! Although many aspects of our lives have been put on pause this past year, we know that life with macular degeneration never goes on “hold.”
AMD rarely gets center stage, but with 196 million people affected by this disease worldwide, it is about time more people knew about it! Join us in spreading awareness this February and beyond.

Tell your macular degeneration story
One of the best ways to raise awareness is by sharing your own story. Not only does it deepen understanding and knowledge-sharing, but it also helps other people navigating vision loss feel less alone.
How were you diagnosed? What symptoms do you experience, and how do they impact your daily life? Are you getting eye injections, and have they helped? How are you doing now?
How do you protect your eyes from the sun?
